First of all, a major "thank you" to Doug, James, Ben, and everybody else @ Oade Brothers Audio for doing the work on the SBM-1, and for sending it out to me in the nick of time. You guys are the best!
As par for the course, I encountered a few of the hazards inherent in running tape FOB. Some fine examples include..
a w00k bummin' a lighter AND snarfin' his joint ("Gotta Jibboo" - R)
another, bigger, w00k snortin' phlegmballs ("The Horse" and "Silent in the Morning" - L)
several random snaps as I am blindsided in the head with Glo-Sticks during "Harry Hood"
During parts of "Harry Hood," the audience threw thousands of plastic tubes filled with day-glo liquid into the air. If I was doing anything other than running tape from the floor, I would have thought it was fantastic; looking up at all of those things sailing by was pretty cool, indeed. Unfortunately, when the odd item catches me upside-the-head, it is also aubible on the tape...
Nitpicks aside, I think this is one helluva show! I hope you enjoy it, too.
